Dr. Salem Samra recently removed a large squamous cell skin cancer from my 95 year old mother’s leg and a month later performed a skin graft to cover the wound. Both procedures were beautifully executed and attentive to my mother’s needs. I want to thank him and his staff for their compassion and skilled professionalism over the last two months. We couldn’t be happier with the results. *

Extremely satisfied with the results. I had a Mohs procedure on my right nostril that required a skin graft to close the wound. To say I was apprehensive was an understatement. Dr. Salem Samra addressed all my concerns during our initial consultation and adeptly performed the skin grafting on the day of the surgery. I experienced minimal discomfort at both the host and graft sites and they have healed wonderfully.

I had Basal Cell Carcinoma on the wing of my nose that needed Mohs surgery and a flap that was not to my liking. I decided I needed plastic surgery to make me want to look into a mirror again. I was recommended to the Samra group and when I called for an appointment and explained my problem, I got this amazing person who was so caring and understanding that I knew I was in good hands. Her name was Samantha and the assistant to the doctor that was going to help me. Meeting Dr. Samra was a wonderful experience I felt very comfortable with him, he was caring and understanding and explained what he was going to do that would make me happy again and I am. Thank you Dr. Salem. *

Dr. Salem Samra is the most skilled and compassionate Surgeon that anyone could ever hope to have as their physician. My experience with Dr. Salem was both a joy and relief after many plastic surgeons said they couldn’t do the surgery that I needed. Dr. Salem explained in detail all of my options. His first option healed me in great preparation for my final surgery. His complex surgery removing a section of skin from my forearm and providing an artery and vein to my affected elbow has made me whole again!! I now work out four days a week and am stronger than before. Thank you Dr. Samra.
